WorldCat Discovery is your best bet when it comes to finding ebooks. Type in the title and then limit your search to ebook using the Format limiters on the left. If Butler has access to the ebook, it will show that the item is owned by Butler University Libraries and give you a link to access the text.

Ebook searching in WorldCat

If your search does not return the right result, double check the title in Amazon and try again. Search by author and publication date as well.

If your search returns the right result, but Butler University Libraries are not listed in green by "Libraries that own this item", we will not have access to the ebook.

If we don't have access to the ebook, you can speak with your liaison librarian to discuss other options. You could also submit an ILL or PALShare request - though we would have to borrow a physical copy of the item for you because remote access of other libraries' ebooks is not possible.
